When visiting a doctor, lawyer, or government agency, Deaf individuals are often met with communication barriers impacting the essential services and information they receive. Many Deaf individuals don’t know how to assert their rights and service providers don’t know what kind of accommodations they have to provide.

CUP teamed up with New York Lawyers for Public Interest (NYLPI) and designer Grace Robinson-Leo to create Sign Up!, a pocket-size foldout. The colorful guide helps Deaf New Yorkers let others know that they are Deaf and what their communication rights are. The guide illustrates the good and illegal practices used by service providers when providing an interpreter and what to do in case of discrimination. Using simple illustrations and high contrast colors, the guide is accessible to Deaf individuals with low vision.
